It is ok to have a slow day. Or two. Really. And Gratitude.

Loving this slow day. Beautiful and cold, bundled up for a walk, did not mind that it was in the 20’s although I notice lately that in order for hands to stay warm, I need to scrunch them up within the gloves, that keeping my fingers in glove fingers does not work – fingers get […]

This is a dreeeeaaammm! I am on vacque in Porchville USA, my fave kind of vacque. In my living room, which looks very nice now that all the kitchen stuff has been put away. Max is home, and at least Woody visited, although he is now back in NY, and Mollie is off gallivanting with […]

Feels like the first Xmas in a long time that I have had nothing scheduled. Very nice. Got to sleep in, be lazy. Mollie and cb are recovering from acute unpleasant illnesses, and timing for them was good. I would like to take a nap this afternoon, as I did yesterday. I am more tired […]

After much phone tag, I finally reached Aunt Evelyn today. She is my Mom’s youngest sister. It must be very weird to be the only remaining sibling. My Dad was the youngest of three siblings, and they died in order of age, and that is what happened with Mom’s siblings, too. So Evelyn is the […]

I am definitely a social being. I have been told that before age 1, I would toddle around Riverdale, where I lived till I was almost 3, and say “hi!” to anyone and everyone. I do thrive in an office setting, surrounded by all sorts of peops, most of whom I like a lot, and […]

The reader may have noticed that this self-described author has been authoring fewer posts than usual. This has not been my intention, of course, since if I could, I would post every day. It is just that My eyelids seem to have put on a bit of weight lately; there is no other possible explanation […]

Just spent about half an hour composing a post about a quilt I am making for Mollie, and somehow it got deleted. It is gone, gone, gone, like in the song. The long and short of it is that I have made quilts for both boys, both of which I believe are ready for trash […]

Not Old Yet

I wonder if it is a sign of getting old. Every weekend, I am filled with ambition – but after a while I just peter out. What I love most is having a stretch unscheduled time. And when I have it, ambition seems to go out the window. Yesterday, cb had to get up very […]
